Britton Peak Trail


A view of Lake Superior and Carlton Peak from Britton Peak

This trail is possibly the shortest trail to a Sawtooth Mountain overlook on the Forest.  It is a quick, though steep, quarter mile hike with a nice scenic view from the top. 

This is also the starting point for the Britton Peak singletrack mountain biking trailsin the summer, and the Sugarbush crosscountry ski trail system in the winter.

Be aware when either biking or hiking that the mountain bike trails may be used by both bikers and hikers.  Hikers should step off the trail and yield to bikers when they meet.  Click here for a map of the mountain bike trail system.

Mountain Biking

Britton Peak singletrack mountain bike trails start from the same trailhead as the hiking trail to Britton Peak overlook, but are separate from the overlook trail.  Bicycles should not use the overlook trail.

Also starting from this trailhead are the Sugarbush XC ski trails.  In most areas, the bike trail is separate from the ski trail.  The ski trail surface is not adequate to withstand the impact of bicycle use, so please do not bike on ski trails.

There are three loops with 5.5 miles of singletrack bike trail in total.

Usage: To control erosion, please do not use the trails if they are wet.  Also, please stay on the trail; avoid 'widening' the trail.
